PARIS, France - Top seeds Bethanie Mattek-Sands and Lucie Safarova were in fine form at the French Open on Friday, as the 2015 champions ended the winning streak of No.3 seeds Martina Hingis and Chan Yung-jan to reach the women's doubles final, 6-4, 6-2.
Chan and Hingis had won their last 12 matches together, and hadn't lost a set at the French Open coming into the semifinals with the loss of just 10 games.
However, the No.3 seeds were no match for the power on display by the top seeds, who broke serve five times and ran off seven of eight games played from 4-4 in the opener to take control of the match.
Mattek-Sands and Safarova will face one half of the duo they did to win the title in Paris in 2015 on Sunday, as unseeded Casey Dellacqua will get her second crack at the American and Czech duo in the final.
Dellacqua and Ashleigh Barty's comeback story continued in Paris as they defeated the No.6 seeds, Lucie Hradecka and Katerina Siniakova, 7-5, 4-6, 6-3 to move into the final.
The Aussie duo were runners-up at the Australian Open, Wimbledon and US Open in 2013, and are the first all-Aussie partners in the Open Era to reach all four Grand Slam finals in the discipline.
Dellacqua has experience facing Mattek-Sands and Safarova in French Open finals, as she was runner-up to the duo in three sets in 2015 alongside Yaroslava Shvedova.
The 32-year-old is into the third women's doubles final of her career in Paris, as she also finished runner-up in 2008 with Francesca Schiavone.
In total, the elder of the two Aussies has finished runner-up in all six women's doubles finals she's contested at a Grand Slam, but she won the mixed event in Paris in 2011 with American Scott Lipsky.
Mattek-Sands and Safarova will put their perfect record in Grand Slam finals on the line on Sunday, as they look for their fifth major title as a pair.
In each of their last three finals, they've rallied from a set down to claim Grand Slam glory.
The duo have never faced Barty and Dellacqua together, as the younger of the two Australians returned to tennis after nearly two years away in 2016.
